How is the Ivanhoe® Collection constructed?
With inspiration found in vintage lighting, the Ivanhoe® Collection is made with quality in mind. A worthy successor to classic pendant lights, this selection of fixtures is constructed using the procedures first developed by historic manufacturers.
A flat piece of solid steel is carefully sculpted by hand until it takes on the timeless shape of RLM shades. Multiple layers of porcelain enamel are then sprayed onto the steel shade, a process completely unique to Barn Light Electric.
The combination of solid steel and porcelain is what gives these ceiling pendants their longevity. Baked in an oven reaching temperatures of 1,600 degrees, the porcelain glass is permanently fused to the shade. The porcelain enamel provides the high-gloss appearance and durability needed in modern buildings.
Why are Ivanhoe® Porcelain Pendant Lights popular in commercial spaces?

With an assortment of finish colors offered, pendant lighting mirrors a brand’s look to establish a cohesive commercial aesthetic. High-gloss porcelain gift a splash of color to businesses and convey color with far greater vibrancy than other finishes. As a result, porcelain ceiling lights become a statement piece in any business.
